Love on the Run
At first glance, the SkirtChaser Race Series sounds like it might boil the blood of a feminist or two. A gaggle of well-toned female racers, many clad in specialty micro-mini skirts made for runners, will take off from the starting line at Tempe Beach Park and engage in a five-kilometer dash. About three minutes later, a throng of amorous males will scamper after them in hopes of catching up for a little fitness, flirting, and fun, plus a $500 grand prize for the top finisher. While the Valentines Day event (natch) is fairly harmless -- and provides race organizers with a gimmick for hawking their line of running wear -- the sexiness factor is most definitely amped up. A post-race party includes a fashion show with models down to their skivvies and awards such as the oh-so-suggestive most likely to make out at the water station honor.
